Wall Street is already handing out verdicts on who will win and who will lose if President Trump follows the Commerce Department's recommendations to impose heavy tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.
For aluminum, Ross recommended a tariff of 7.7% on imports from all countries, or a tariff of 23.6% on imports from five specific aluminum exporters, again including China and Russian Federation.
The change comes amid heightened tensions between Europe and the USA over the possibility of a trade dispute, with Washington threatening to restrict American purchases of foreign steel and aluminum on national-security grounds.
Another option will be tariffs of at least 53% on steel imports from Brazil, China, Costa Rica, India, Russia, Egypt, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, South Africa, Turkey, and Vietnam.
"As more than 2.2 million American jobs depend on our nation's vibrant beer industry, we urge President Trump to consider the adverse impact trade restrictions on aluminum will have on American jobs before making his final decision".
Trump is facing resistance to tariffs from lawmakers in his own party.
American steel stocks spiked on Friday immediately after the Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross proposed actions aimed at reviving the beleaguered steel industry. Although Trump campaigned on a protectionist platform, he has taken only modest action so far to restrict imports.
Molson Coors Brewing, the maker of Coors Light and Miller Light, reportedly warned a year ago that aluminum duties would "obviously get passed on to us and the customer".
In a statement in response to the Commerce report, the group continued to stress that it believes any action should address Chinese overcapacity, not interfere with trading relationships between the United States and countries such as Canada and the European Union, and avoid unintended consequences for U.S. production and jobs, including for the downstream industry. He could use tariffs or specifically target companies.
There would be a 90-day appeal period allowing US companies to request exceptions, Ross said.
US President Donald Trump has threatened China with sanctions for trade imbalance and policies that are hurting the American industry, a move that could result in increasing chances of a trade war between two of the world's largest economies.
The department notes that employment in the aluminum industry fell by 58 percent between 2013 and 2016, while employment in the steel industry dropped 35 percent in the last 20 years.
The options suggested include limiting all countries to steel exports equal to 63 per cent of their 2017 exports into the USA, or a more severe quota for a smaller list of countries if Trump goes the more targeted route. And only one company in the country produces the high-quality aluminum alloy used for military aerospace purposes.
